Right, I remember reading somewhere that with convert switches order counts ...

UPDATE< convert can process several files at a time, and the switches have to be before the corresponding filename! >

> Yet, I'm not really convinced of the quality that can be achieved that way.

UPDATE< Did you try a higher density yet? 300 works fine for me and filesize even drops!>

Actually I switched 7 years ago to pstoimg from the latex2html distribution producing very neat png's.

(but it's -as I noticed today - just a perl wrapper around gs ;)

Anyway pstoimg has two switches for antialiasing : -antialias and -aaliastext so I suppose thats the point where convert may loose the necessary information...

Cheers Rolf
